Today, The Orlando Eye reached another milestone as the first of 30 passenger capsules was hoisted into place and secured for its first passengers.

There will be a total of 30 passenger capsules attached to the giant wheel, each one capable of carrying 15 people.  Each capsule weighs appropriately 6,600 pounds.

There will be air conditioning inside each capsule along with a touchscreen tablet displaying highlights of the surrounding area.

The entire installation of one capsule is a task that takes several hours to complete.  The installation of all 30 capsules is scheduled to span over the next several weeks.

The Orlando Eye is scheduled to open later this spring.
